More Development Convenience – Syntax Highlighting for Sublime Text

Laird Connectivity’s unique smartBASIC language is our unique, easy approach to developing for hosted and hostless wireless applications. smartBASIC abstracts what would be hundreds or thousands of lines of C code into a toolkit of simple commands that can be used for full module control and wireless applications. With full API documentation, many sample applications, and portability between wireless modules, Laird Connectivity’s smartBASIC is one of the easiest ways to quickly write wireless applications for our line of smartBASIC-enabled Bluetooth, LoRaWAN, and LTE modules.

As a unique application language, Laird Connectivity created plugins for the popular Notepad++ and Textpad text editors. This makes it easier to see the difference between module-specific commands, core commands, comments, and more.

As we’ve seen an increased popularity in Sublime Text as a preferred text editor, we’ve developed a plugin for Sublime Text that creates the same text highlighting for easier development. Sublime Text, which describes itself as a “sophisticated text editor for code, markup and prose,” is available for Windows, Mac OSX and Linux and includes a wide set of features that its users love for simplicity of navigation in code, a highly capable API, and wide customization.
